The Garmin Fenix 2 Brings The Running Watch Into A Dystopian Future

kahyehm:

I’ve always wanted one…

You’re in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It’s crawling toward you… how do you train yourself to outrun it? I like to think you’d probably want a Fenix 2 from Garmin.

I’ve used Garmin running watches since their first, bulbous balls of GPS electronics were launched in the early 2000s. Now, after multiple generations and iterations, after the slimming down of most of the battery and a general improvement in GPS connectivity (plus a generous dollop of improved styling) we have reached the apex of the activity watch summit. The Fenix 2 is one of the coolest-looking sports watches you can get and, for once, it’s surprisingly accurate and very, very usable. And it looks like something the Borg would wear.

What does it do? Pretty much what you expect from a trail watch and a…

I don’t want to die but I’m not keen on living either.

kahyehm:

being someone who just got out of depression, i totally get it… but what I never got was the desire to take ones life, it has nothing to do with being Catholic like most people think, but I think I just have so much respect for life and a little about how I’m a medical student and a psychology graduate, you know how I kind of have an idea how great the mind and the body is, who it on its own is a form of miracle, and though I might feel sad, or before DEPRESSED, I thought about it, yes, but I never stayed there you know, thinking I’d kill myself, it was always just in passing… the answer was always a big NO even before i thought of asking it…

Nonetheless, depression is a very real thing, not everyone is like me… so if you think anyone is undergoing depression, you must do what you can to help :)

I remember being young and naive and not having an understanding of why anyone would ever want to take their own life. I remember when my father took his own life I would lie in bed at night wondering how someone could reach the point of throwing the towel in with life. I would wonder what the very last thing he thought about was. Did he think about me and my siblings and my mother? This kept me awake at night for months on end. It wasn’t until I reached a certain point with depression that I understood truly what it feels like. Too often people say that suicide is selfish but if you ask anyone who survived a suicide attempt, myself included, regardless of the wonderful things I had in my life. Regardless of the loving family that surrounded me and the supportive friends I had, none of that…

Swing Copters Is The Latest Game From The Creator Of Flappy Bird

kahyehm:

is he gonna delete this, and make us all pissed at him? AGAIN

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Take Flappy Bird, make the bird fly vertically and avoid swinging things, and you have Swing Copters, the next mobile game from Dong Nguyen. Because let’s burn more of our time on this earth with mindless games.

The game is expected to launch later this week on the 21st and will be an ad-supported free download — or $.99 for the ad-free version.

TouchArcade got an exclusive first look at the game, and while the graphics are of course underwhelming, the gameplay looks as maddening as Nguyen’s original hit. But now, instead of just avoiding stationary objects, players have to navigate around swinging objects as well.

Sims 3 house

so… i was going to make a video of this, but i realized, from the time since my last video editing and now, i don’t know how to put this, I DON’T KNOW WHERE MOVIE MAKER IS…

I’ll just have to make do with pictures, I think :)

A little background, I was looking at pictures of modern homes, Why? only God knows… because I’m still a student and I don’t have money to build that..

and I saw this

modern spanish house plans photo

and I thought, i could do this on Sims 3, not the exact copy of course, just something inspired from it…

Something modern, anyway, this is what I ended up with

i love the backyard

this is my favorite part

where on the first floor, the dining area lead to the backyard, where you can sit and chill, hiding from the sun in the love seat or getting a tan in lounge chairs. and in the second floor there’s the gym/game room with the aquarium window where I imagine you’ll see the ocean while getting pumped from exercising OR playing games :)

my Sim living the dream :p

pardon the bedrooms, I got tired… hehe :p the backyard was my main focus :)

my technique throughout building this is to design the room first before I put on the flooring and the walls, because I realized from past buildings I’ve made that I find it harder to match the objects when I’ve already decided on the walls, and end up just changing the walls then the objects again, it was time consuming really. I think I like this technique better

good bye from my sim

Boxing

So im kinda new to thing boxing thing, like 3/4 odd months since i started, and knowing this, my dad bought me gloves to use for this purpose since ive been borrowing from the gym and have now decided i like boxing and will continue this as a hobby

Thoughts

Contemplating on the things ive learned these past few days…

My mind has been uncharacteristically clear, ive been able to see what ive been trying to hide from myself for a long time… and when youve realized youve wasted your time on a person that youve given si much effort and time to… it leaves you to think about what your perspectives in life are… even now im having flashbacks of what happened the past years and my golly have i been so blind. Its like having glasses now… i just dont jnow what to do with my new found eyesight though, do i continue to be useful or do i stop and make them realize they need me and theyve been treating me like shit?

My heart

I dont know why i lime books… I mean… They make me cry a lot… You knew (if youve been reading my blog) that i was left paralyzed when i finished reading allegiant… But since i havent got as much time… I mean at this moment… I read the fault in our stars the i felt paralyzed and decided to read if i stay in a flash…. Whoch right now… I dont know what i feel about i mean… Those are both really great books but omg my heart
